This weekend was the Mare Island Faire paintout in Vallejo. It was pretty cool, the first time I entered into a competition, though very small. Only about 5 participants. Though I didn't win Best in Show, I took home 1st and 2nd place awards! The judge was Ed Bertolet. Iris Sabre won Best in Show, and Gerald de Dios took home 3rd place.
1st Place Winner: Red Tree
2nd Place Winner: Secluded Base
I took reference shots on my cell phone so the pics arent the greatest. You can see the places I chose to paint from.
